The Last Days of Disco



Kim Kardashian (who most recently appeared on the cover of New York's Fall Fashion issue) is all over the internet today for two recent photo shoots that couldn’t be more different if they tried.

Nick Knight took to Instagram and Twitter last night to share a moody black-and-white portrait [3] he took of the reality star for V (“@SHOWstudio: The very lovely Kim Kardashian. Preview from the series of pictures I shot of Kim for SHOWstudio and V magaz”) while Kim shared some more...interesting snaps [1] on her own blog from a recent shoot with music-video director and master of the fisheye lens Hype Williams.

“Clyde Haygood and Joyce Bonelli glammed me up and we went for a fun, crazy look, channeling Diana Ross [2]. Definitely a new look for me. Xo” Kim wrote, posting a series of frankly startling images of herself with heavily bronzed skin, bubblegum-pink lips, hot-pink blush, super-sized eyelashes, and a heavily teased-out mane. All along we’ve imagined Kanye’s influence would push Kardashian towards sleek and chic Céline and Isabel Marant, not disco-era excess...but perhaps Yeezy can't quite tell her to stop in the name of love?

    The disco-inspired look is definitely over the top, but I like the sheer fun of it. Clearly, she would never go out sporting this kind of makeup and hair (at least I hope not). Sometimes it's just fun to play with makeup. Kind of like how girls like dressing up for Halloween.

    She looks like a clown in that Diana Ross inspired look. Love the V Magazine look though.

  • HH

    More like channeling Big Ang...not the slightest paying homage to Diana Ross or the glamour of disco. She just looks foolish and tacky.

  • Laura

    Really? Kim? Come on!

  • larissa

    I'm scared of her eyelashes!

    Dear God that is a terrible look for Kim! She's so beautiful, why would they do that to her?
    Not a fan of disco beauty, obviously. The afro, sure. But the makeup? I'll pass!

  • Leather and Ice Cream

    Too much for my taste...

    Really Kim?
    Somebody should do us all a favour a take this family off the spotlight.

  • Eat.Style.Play

    The v mag picture is gorgeous and perfection though.

  • Sanaa

    Not a fan of this look at all :/
